Pretty much what previous reviewer says...just an old grown-in road and not very interesting. Was doing a long loop back from AT and took the trail only to avoid hiking back on Old Mine Rd most of the way. For that purpose it was nice change and easy enough to do some trail running. There is a power line clearing early on that offers a view up the mountain. It does connect to Pioneer Trail and Orchard Trail. I believe the dashed trail path about half way on AllTrails map which goes north toward the Delaware River is the Pioneer trail although it is labeled as the Hamilton Ridge trail.

First to Review

Hamilton Ridge Trail is an old road that is still paved or moss covered in many areas. This makes it very easy to travel on and should be ok for most skill levels. The trailhead and small parking area is located near Millbrook Village which is worth checking out and also has restrooms available. By itself the Hamilton Ridge trail is kind of boring. If I were to return I would add the Pioneer Trail and turn it into a loop. Much more to see including historic sites along the Pioneer Trail and would not add much more mileage.
